Members of the American Legion Post 140 in Bridgeport said they're going to be warm this winter thanks to the generosity of the nonprofit Oil Heat Cares and Standard Oil.
Standard Oil worked Saturday with the nonprofit to give the American Legion post a new furnace and oil tank.
Legion members say they are grateful for the generosity of Oil Heat Cares and Standard Oil.
"You know it's a great thing that we have people in the community reaching to help the veterans and I'm very, very proud to be the commander here," said Commander Luis Sanchez.
"Oil Heat Cares is coming to the rescue and this recognition of service of veterans who were there for us is really deserving of thanks," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal.
Proud veterans who served their country are grateful that the community they live in has never forgotten the sacrifices they made.
"They're doing a great job for us, and I really appreciate it," Sanchez added.
The project was dedicated to Tifanny Mellers, who was an Army reservist from Bridgeport who died after a battle with cancer. She left behind two young daughters and her husband.
